  1. I wish people knew how difficult it is to hate looking at yourself in the mirror.

    1. I wish most people would know how heartbreaking it is to see your loved one dealing with such pain. She is non verbal but you can tell from her facial expressions that she is in pain. It breaks my heart because I don't always know what to do to help but I try my best.

      1. I wish people understood the pain and stigma associated with HS.
